Completed in 1766 for Joseph Lloyd–the second lord of the Manor of Queens Village–the Joseph Lloyd Manor House is a handsome center hall colonial building that was the seat of a 3000-acre country estate that came under British occupation during the Revolutionary War. Built by Connecticut craftsmen, it remained in the Lloyd family until 1876 and eventually became the country house of Mrs. Anna Matheson Wood who donated the property to SPLIA in 1968. Today, Lloyd Manor is furnished to the 1793 inventory of John Lloyd II and occupies a spectacular 2.5-acre setting that overlooks Lloyd Harbor and a formal garden from the Wood era. Lloyd Manor was the home of Jupiter Hammon, a slave who became the first published black poet.
